(2) Number of cases arising from apprehensions (equivalent to charged cases) taken from MOJ Court Proceedings Database (CPD).
(3) Estimated proportion based on one sample week of charged cases (summons are excluded from these figures) in March, June, September and December. The Time Intervals Survey (TIS) collects the number of hearings for completed criminal cases in magistrates1 courts. More information on TIS is available on the Ministry of Justice website.
(4) The margin of error is a measure of the precision of a result based on a sample survey. Number of hearings in magistrates court cases are measured using data from a sample of the total number of defendants. The sample provides one estimate of the average number of hearings and different samples would produce different averages. The true value is likely to fall within the range of the sample result +/- the margin of error.
